vtune returns error when analysis uarch-exploration

I'm using Intel(R) oneAPI VTune(TM) Profiler 2021.1.1 Gold (build 613804).

When I wanna collect uarch-exploration with command "vtune -collect uarch-exploration -- sleep 3", I got errors like:

"vtune: Error: Cannot configure sampling event groups. The collection is terminated.
Use -knob event-config=? to see the list of available events for the target.
vtune: Collection failed."

I found that the error occurs when "pmu-collection-mode=detailed" where detailed is the default value.

"vtune -collect uarch-exploration -knob pmu-collection-mode=detailed -- sleep 3" returns the same error message.

But "vtune -collect uarch-exploration -knob pmu-collection-mode=summary -- sleep 3" works well.

 

How could I solve this problem?

Hi,

Could you share bad result directory?

OK. The detailed directory is compressed and attached.

In r017ue-bad.vtune

What's more, when I collect uarch metrics with command:  vtune -collect uarch-exploration -knob pmu-collection-mode=summary -target-pid=9215

Here the pid is a process of wrf.exe in openmpi application locally.

I got a weird result:

I'm sure there are memory access and L3 miss rate is almost 80% monitoring with pcm.

Why I got 100% core bound?

I encountered the same issue with 2021.1 version when I was analyzing an application on a remote server.

So how to solve the problem?

Is there any way to get another version of vtune that can work correctly?
